Episode 13

Maria woke up suddenly and noticed Natasha wasn’t in the room with her.

She turned on the light. “Nathy? Nathy ohh!!” She called, thinking she was inside the toilet but no one answered her.

She came down from the bed, putting on her robe. “An an, na where this girl go?” She asked herself, heading out of the room.

She walked outside the main building and stepped out into the compound. She looked around the dark places but there was no one in sight.

She was about going back in when she heard a laughter from the back garden of the first building.

Tiptoeing,she went over to take a look. Her mouth dropped open as she watched Natasha laying so relaxed in Gerald’s arms.

“Chai. This girl no get sense oh. If to say na another persin see am nko? See them. I no even no say he don serious like this oh. Ehh!” Maria whispered, peeping at them.

Silently,she walked back into the house.

” I’ve not felt this happy in a long time. Thank you, Gerald.” Natasha murmured against his chest.

Gerald looked down at herself and something suddenly came into his mind.

No. No. No. Gerald,this is wrong. You don’t Know this woman yet so well. Why are you falling so easily?, First things first.

You have to be sure she’s real and the right woman for you. Do not start any romance with her right now…not now…

“Gerald? Are you listening to me?” Natasha asked, lifting her head from his chest.

“Oh. Yes. I was just thinking about about something.” Gerald responded.

” Something? What’s that?”

Gerald breathed in. He looked at her and moved a little away. Natasha stared at him, wondering why he did that. “This is wrong.

You and I Know that this is totally wrong. What if we get caught?

This is the only means for me to take care of myself. What if I lose my job?

If Oga sees me with you or if anybody else sees us,you Know what it means. I’m going to lose my job and you will also get disqualified. Then what happens to me? Where do I feed from now on?” Gerald asked.

Natasha stared at him, amazed. ” Come on,I don’t care if I get disqualified or not. All I know is that I’m in love with you and you don’t expect me to just ignore you. Look,I can’t get disqualified without a prize.

And as for your job, if you lose your job… It’s nit going to be a big blow cos I’m going to give you half of my money.

Infact, I can tell my mom to employ you in one of her cosmetic company if you want.

I don’t like this work for you after all! You are way too much than this. ” Natasha said to Gerald’s amazement.

He almost smiled. What s nice thing to say.

But he remained adamant for reason best known him. “Thanks for all the kind gestures but I still maintain my stand that this is wrong.

You know what you are here for. Get over with it first. ” Gerald said firmly.

Natasha’s reaction was amusing just like he suspected. “No! Dont tell me that! Because I won’t give up ” with that, Natasha turned and ran off.

Gerald watched her as she left angrily and finally smiled with a little laughter.
